Additional Comments: This is a day of drummers playing for drummers! There are always very interesting groups/individuals playing styles of drumming way different than what we do. It is an eye-opener for beaters and parents alike.
Throughout the day, local jr high and high school percussion groups play for top-level percussionists/clinicians. I will send out the schedule as soon as I get it. It is always good for the Beaters to see the opportunities that await them when they get older. Tickets for Beater families is $5. A raffle ticket is included in that price.
Percussion Festival Schedule
Check to see if your Beater's future JH and/or HS are playing. This is a completely different style of percussion playing than we do. It would be great for the Beaters to see what their future may hold.
At 11:00am there will be a timpani clinic. Those are the large copper kettle-looking drums you see in field shows, concert bands and orchestras. The timpani are the drum set of the orchestra.
At 2:00pm there will be a clinic on marimba playing. Your Beater could see marimba played very differently than we do in WGTB. It could be very inspiring for them.
Beaters get in for FREE to EVERYTHING.
After we play, there will be a whole concert of percussion groups very different than us. It could be inspiring and certainly educational for your Beater to watch.
Its a WHOLE DAY of DRUMMING! What could be BETTER? :>)
